Wisconsin bonus tags went on sale this morning and I was able to secure one and extended my hunting by a week. Earlier in the year, Wisconsin has a drawing from submitted applications, surplus tags are then offered at this later date to sell as many as possible. As a non-resident, we're pretty low in preference for the draws, I get it and understand it, but it means we draw later dates. Getting a bonus tag allowed me to get a 1 week earlier season. My 40 acres isn't enough to qualify for landowner preference, you need 50 contiguous acres. So I'm glad they offer this because now I have 2 weeks to hunt I stead of just 1. So, now I just have to be patient and read about you guys already out there until my seasons, the first 2 weeks of May. Enjoy!

Congrats on the extra tag, best of luck in filling your tags.

I'll be just north of you in the UP. I used to hunt WI for turkeys but as you say, nonresidents end up getting the later seasons. In the UP, you have all season to hunt so you can be flexible schedule-wise. Good luck!!

Thanks!

I ended up getting a 3rd tag, so 1 tag in zone 1 first week of May (middle of WI, just south of Mauston at a friend's place). And 2 tags for zone 2 second and third weeks of May at my property in SW Door Co (between Green Bay and Sturgeon Bay). While I'm not overly excited about the time of year my tags are good for, I am excited that if I want, I can basically hunt 3 weeks in one month. One year, I was having so much fun calling in a lot of different toms on my property, that I ended up not shooting any, because as soon as I shot one, I'd be done! Called in a lot of birds that spring. Lookin forward to this...

Got up to my place for a couple days in NE WI and while driving around was pleased to see birds out in fields, but didn't see any strutting. One field I was driving by had a bunch of birds in it and then I noticed an absolute Goliath of a tom walking across the field towards the other birds. I literally almost drove off the road looking at just about the biggest tom I've ever seen! The field I saw him in is a couple miles from my place, so I'll make sure to call extra loud in a couple weeks and see if he shows up! Lol!

I think Wis. should issue more tags. There sure are a lot of them.
